Tyra Pruitt, current student

Master of Public Administration

I have benefited from the classes in business tremendously! I'm a supervisor and have applied what I've learned in class daily. I'm better in my career because of my UIU education. I'm more prepared for retirement and I'm not afraid of the transition. Most importantly, there's no more room for excuses in my family! If my old brain can be rebooted then so can yours!
